Announcing our MacPherson Prize Winner: Dr. Christopher Aspaas!

SACC is so excited to announce our MacPherson Prize winner: Dr. Christoper Aspaas! 


Dr. Aspaas serves as Director of Choral Activities and Associate Professor of Music at TCU. He received his Ph.D. in Choral Music Education at The Florida State University in Tallahassee, his M.M. in Choral Conducting from Michigan State University in East Lansing, and his B.M. in Voice Performance from St. Olaf. At TCU, Christopher leads the Concert Chorale, TCU’s flagship mixed ensemble, as well as the Frog Corps, TCU’s premier male vocal ensemble. He also teaches coursework in basic conducting, choral conducting, choral literature, and advanced choral conducting and oversees the graduate choral conducting program. His travels as a guest conductor, clinician, adjudicator, and lecturer have taken Christopher all over the United States as well as Canada, Germany, South Korea, and the Sultanate of Oman.

Christopher has produced more than forty arrangements and compositions for mixed, men's, and women's choirs. His works are published by Augsburg Fortress, earthsongs, Hal Leonard, and Aspen Hill Music, a publishing house Christopher co-founded with his wife Nancy in 2013. One of his recent commissions, Do Not Ask Me to Remember, premiered at the 2017 National Conference of the American Choral Directors Association in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Dr. Aspaas will join with our Artistic Director Rick Bjella and SACC for our upcoming concert on April 6th and 7th: I Got Rhythm...North Meets South. We are so excited to see the collaboration between these two choral greats! Don't miss it!



Save the Date for our next concert!


We invite you to join in a bit of theatre and music that has excited audiences throughout the ages, followed by a bite to eat! Excerpts from Shakespearean plays will be brought to life in verse and song from Macbeth, The Tempest, and The Merchant of Venice to name just a few.
